I really don't see that much difference. Same main rotor diameter and the mini-cp will probably be same weight or heavier. If you want a vertically mounted rx get the mini-cp, if you want horizontally mounted get the genius. The separate skids are nice though. Imo the vertical looks "toyish" like an mcpx or msrx.

Walkera are probably the their own worst enemy, when most companies are on a roll with the fans praising the latest and greatest product they stoke the fire to promote more sales and good will - walkera tend to throw another cat into the pigeon house

Now if they really want to pi** us off they will make the parts (shaft, head, etc.) with slightly different dimensions so they are not compatible/interchangeable with the genius. At least for now the servos look the same.
